    You're most welcome KingSol. I'm glad it could help.
    "One thing I forgot to add is the confirmation message that is returned from the Registry Editor. I have rarely, if ever, modified the registry.

    Registry Editor

    The keys and values contained in C:\Users\KingSol\Desktop\Unassociate_etl.reg have been successfully added to the registry "

    That's normal. Merging the .reg file modifies the registry.

    "I've been reading up on the registry lately. I plan to periodically backup (export) registry hive:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts
    just in case I accidentally make another boboo . I think exporting and importing (merge) a single hive would be better than to backup and restore the entire registry."

    Default File Type Associations


    "Hello @Arkyquest,

    All you have to do is copy what Brink sent you to your desktop. Right click on it. a context menu will appear. click on MERGE to complete the operation.

    Prior to execution, you should backup your registry or set a system restore point. Hope that help."

    Thanks Brink, will try not to click that button in the future unless I really want to... why isn't there a big UNDO button on the desktop for these situations

    You're most welcome Arkyquest. I'm glad it could help.

    Technically, you could use system restore with restore points as a big undo button.

    Hello Brink!


    I've been having this issue with .smd files, where, I want to open them with "Unknown Application" again. Once, I tried to open an .smd file with Blender, but now all of these kinds of files open with Blender.

    I followed your first option, where I had to download FileTypesMan. But after following the instructions, .smd disappeared from FileTypesMan, and all of these files still open with Blender...

    Could you help me, please? What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks!
